That page looks very confused indeed.

Just a pointer: formal use does not know a "binominal".
The zoological Code uses "binomen" or "binominal name".
The botanical Code uses "binomial" (not "binomial name")

There is no such thing as a "cultivar group": it is a "Group".

It is extremely silly to use a "x" (small letter x) 
where a "×" (multiplication sign) is prescribed.
